Penrose – an upcoming landmark along Sims Drive

Enjoy “everything in perfect balance”.

Inspired by the flawless geometry of nature, Penrose is a brand-new residential project by established developers Hong Leong Holdings Limited and City Developments Limited.

With a choice city-fringe location, in the mature Aljunied neighbourhood, Penrose combines the tranquil charm of the heartlands with the bustling beat of the city, giving residents the perfect balance of suburban repose and downtown excitement.

Sited along Sims Drive, Penrose is just a stone’s throw away from Aljunied MRT station on the East-West line and within close walking distance to the upcoming Mattar MRT station on the Downtown line. With the transit lines supported by a robust road network and the nearby PIE and KPE, the development enjoys excellent accessibility and connectivity. The CBD is under 15 minutes’ drive away, while Changi Airport is approximately 18 minutes away.

Just one stop away at the Paya Lebar MRT interchange is the thriving Paya Lebar Central regional hub featuring office space and a plethora of retail and lifestyle outlets operating out of Paya Lebar Quarter, Paya Lebar Square and SingPost Centre.  

Three stops in the other direction is the vibrant Bugis district, which offers a delightful blend of retail therapy and cultural heritage. Alternatively, residents can hop onto the upcoming Mattar MRT station nearby, and enjoy a smooth ride all the way into the Downtown Core.

Families with school-going children will be glad to find established educational institutions in the vicinity, such as Geylang Methodist School and James Cook University, while food enthusiasts will surely be delighted to discover an amazing selection of dining options that include the Sims Vista Market & Food Centre in the immediate neighbourhood and the Old Airport Road Food Centre, about 8 minutes’ drive away.

Built on a spacious site of approximately 16,225 sq m (or 174,646 sq ft), Penrose offers a generous selection of facilities that caters to residents of all ages.

Drop off at the Grand Clubhouse for a warm welcome and thereafter, proceed to explore the condominium’s premises that include a 50-metre lap pool, water terrace, spa pavilions, sky garden, City View Lounge, Kid’s Adventure Park and more.

With a total of 566 apartments in five 18-storey blocks, Penrose offers compact 1-bedroom units starting at 474 sq ft to spacious 4-bedroom apartments above 1,388 sq ft. The variety of apartment types makes this development an apt choice for various needs, ranging from small nuclear families to multi-generational, extended families.

Upcoming urban rejuvenation programmes, including the massive Paya Lebar Airbase transformation project together with plans to turn the Kallang River area into a lifestyle hub, will make the neighbourhood an even more attractive place to live and thereby support capital appreciation and rental yield over the long term.
